More koozhu and a Tag

More koozhu is my all time favorite tiffin. My patti used to make it in traditional way. But I learned this from my mother in law and made some changes using my patti's recipe. here is the recipe.

  1. Rice flour - 2 cups
  2. Sour buttermilk - 1 cup
  3. Green chillies - 3 (acc to taste) (very finely chopped)
  4. Ginger - a small piece (finely chopped)
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Oil - 2 tbsp
  7. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  8. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  9. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  10. Curry leaves - few
  11. coconut oil - 1 tsp
First mix rice flour, buttermilk and salt together into a pouring consistency like dosa batter. Add water to adjust the consistency. Pre heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add urad dhall, asafoetida powder, curry leaves, green chillies and ginger and saute' till it becomes golden brown. Now pour the rice + buttermilk batter to it slowly and stir it continuously till the rice is fully cooked and cover it with a lid for a minute. Wash your hand with water and touch the koozhu now. It should not stick in your hands - this is the required stage for koozhu. Now take a plate, spread coconut oil in that plate with your hands, pour the koozhu and pat it with your hands. Cut it into small pieces according to your wish. Close it with a lid. After 5 mts, open the lid and serve the pieces hot. Since this koozhu has all the tastes in itself like spice, sour and salt, side dish is not required. If required serve it with coconut chutney.

Crissy and Nidhi has tagged me and its a nice poem about friendship.

Why Do We Need Friends?

We need friends for many reasons,
all throughout the season.
We need friends to comfort us
when we are sad,
and to have fun with us when we are glad.

We need friends to give us good advice,
We need someone we can count on,
and treat us nice.

We need friends to remember us
one we have passed
sharing memories that will always last.

Spread the poem of friendship.
